Each year, the club awards a prize for a junior player who has made a very strong and notable contribution to the Club or their fellow player or in some other way.
The junior player recognised in 2016 was Maria Harten.
Maria was awarded her Trophy on December 17th by Susan Looby (Member of Club Committee).
Maria has successfully agitated throughout 2016 for a Girls Team to play and represent the Club. She has reminded the Club Coaches of the need and interest – and has personally sought out new players.
It was only on December 11th, 2016 – very close the near the end of the year – that a new Blanchardstown team was formed. The Blanchardstown Lionesses consisted of Maria and her good friends in the Club: Mia, Emily and Nika. The girls immediately participated in the Mick Germaine Cup (Leinster team rapid championships) and performed impressively.
The Club congratulates Maria on her contribution to the Club and to her other players in 2016.
